TACOMA – Explore downtown Tacoma by following clues, answering trivia, and completing challenges on the Walk Tacoma Scavenger Hunt on Wednesday, Aug. 10, 2016.
Participants may begin the scavenger hunt between 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. at Tollefson Plaza at S. 17th & Pacific Ave. They will use public transportation, their feet, or a bike to get to destinations scattered across downtown Tacoma before meeting back at the plaza at 6:45 p.m., where there will be food trucks, prizes, and live music played by Rod Koon and friends. Prizes will be awarded to participants reaching certain point levels. Participants may complete the hunt as individuals or in teams. The highest scoring individual and team will each win a grand prize.
Many of the destinations on the hunt have been featured during the 2016 Walk Tacoma series or in the Walk Tacoma Downtown Walking Maps (available at the event). Participants will be asked to take a photo at many of the locations, so a digital camera or camera phone is required.
Pick-up a Downtown On the Go punch card at the Scavenger Hunt and earn a DOTG t-shirt by attending three Downtown On the Go Walk, Bike or Transit events. For this event, participants will receive a transit stamp or walk stamp on their Downtown On the Go punch card as part of our earn a t-shirt program – this a great chance to get a new mode! For exclusive sneak peeks at some of the clues, follow Downtown On the Go on Facebook and Twitter.
Tollefson Plaza is accessible by many Pierce Transit routes and the Tacoma Link Light Rail. If you’re arriving by car, you can park in the Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center parking garage on S. 17th & Market St. or at the Tacoma Dome Station and take the Link.
The Walk Tacoma Series, sponsored by the Puyallup Watershed Initiative Active Transportion COI, is a seven event walking series held on the first Wednesday of the month, from April through October. The fun, themed walks, now in their seventh year, encourage people to enjoy downtown on foot by introducing new walking routes, and sharing information about the community and its history through the guided tours. The walks are scheduled at the lunch hour and just after work to encourage downtown employees, students, and residents to walk during the day, whether it is to and from work or school, at a lunch break, or to run an errand.Print This Post
